“Look up, there’s a mountain
We shall go up and come down, shall we?
I hear someone singing from a distance and
I know that there’s someone here
Other than just you and me
So, let’s follow the voices
We shall go up and come down, shall we?”
“As you say, my love” said She.
Twenty-two, August, Twenty-eighteen.
“Is it too hard to get over the ones we love?
Is it painful, to move on?
I don’t know.
There’s nothing but vehemence all over the place.
So, what could possibly heal my heart?
Would it be love, again?
I’m afraid I’d stop for it’d make things worse again.
I can’t love anyone anymore because I still think that I’m in love with you.
I should leave that there.
There, she left. I had to let her go. She was perfect. Things weren’t perfect. But, she was. She had to go for she had to accomplish what she loved. I had to leave her. I was harsh. I had to be, or else, she wouldn’t leave.
Solitude, that was where I stayed for I didn’t want anyone to see me breaking down.
Back to the Present.
“Look, I’ve been waiting for so long to tell you something. But, in order to hear me, we need to get to the peak. What do you say?
Maybe you’d say something too. Three words, remember this.”
“Okay, let’s get going!” Oh, that was loud. The birds flew away out of terror. Thanks to my soothing voice!
“Okay dear! To the peak first” she scorned as she was struggling to keep up the pace with me.
I agree to the fact that “Nature is beautiful” but, there she was, jumping over rocks and hurdles. She was relentless.
Look at her eyes
Oh, is this true love?
Somebody just tell me that it is
For I’ve fallen for her.
I’m stuck in an abyss and
I find no way out
For this is the place
I’m supposed to be.
That is, in love
True love, this is.
“Hooray! Finally, we’re here! Oh, just look at the world! It’s so beautiful, and small!” She jumped with joy.
“Yes! It is beautiful indeed.”
We were on top of the hill. The combination was just perfect – Sapphire and the Emerald joined together. So romantic!
“So, are you ready? Three words!” Her eyes gleamed as she spoke.
“Okay, so you go first!” I laughed. I wanted her to say what she felt. Whatever I wanted to tell her could wait.
She came closer and held my hands. I shuddered. “I love you.” She whispered into my ears and moved back. She pulled me closer and cuddled me.
“Okay, it’s your turn now!” She said as she continued cuddling me.
I released her clasp around me and I turned her around and covered her eyes with my trembling fingers.
“Okay, we aren’t dancing are we? I think that you need an extra word to complete your sentence because I just told you what I felt. A reply from you should be a word longer, right?” She said as she held my fingers which blocked her sight from seeing me.
“No my dear. Three is just fine”
“Oh, how sweet!” She blushed
“Hey, where are you? I can feel your hands but you’re not speaking. Is something wrong? Release me, will you?” She was confused!
I gave a thrust from behind her, strong enough for her to move away from me.
“Go die, witch!” I said as she could still hear me.
Perhaps, she didn’t hear me as she was in mid-air, struggling to get a strong hold onto a rock or something which could keep her from falling down.
I saw her until she disappeared into the darkness. I turned around and walked away imagining the fall from a cliff. It should have been a thrilling ride. I can still bet on that.
I pulled a notepad out of my pocket and wrote down –
I’m still in love with the first.
